Carrigfoyle Activity Centre is progressing

By Dan Walsh

Works on Phase One of the Carrigfoyle Activity Centre includes access road, car park, trails and services, and will be completed shortly, meanwhile draft design drawings for Phase Two of the €3 million development   of an Activity Building on the site  have been prepared by Wexford County Council’s Architect Department.

The old quarry site at Carrigfoyle is being converted into an Activity Centre that will boost local tourism

Chief Executive Officer Tom Enright gave details about the current position in regards the Carrigfoyle development in response to a query from Cllr Garry Laffan at the September meeting of Wexford County Council held under Covid-19 government restrictions in the Riverside Park Hotel, Ennsicorthy.

“The drawings are currently being reviewed by the Special Projects Office with a view to making a Part VIII application and the project is now entering Phase Two,” Mr Enright told the members. He added that the safety work has been carried out on the site.

Phase Two will include the construction of the actual building that will include climbing walls, indoor training facilities, and a coffee shop or restaurant.

Mr Enright said there is over 10kms of trails between the Three Rocks and Carrigfoyle on the side of Forth Mountain, just above the village of Barntown, and it can be used  by visitors and the community.
